England in India ODI Series - 5th ODI

India v England

India won by 95 runs

17.1

Finn to Gambhir, OUT, bowled off the inside edge! Gambhir tried to cut a short of a length ball off the back foot, it was a touch too close to him and he played it on to his stumps

G Gambhir b Finn 38 (70m 46b 4x4 0x6) SR: 82.60

India 80/1   AM Rahane 42* (57b 6x4)   ST Finn 5.1-0-20-1

17.6

Finn to Kohli, OUT, Kohli hasn't offered a shot and has lost off stump! That ball landed on a good length outside off stump and cut in off the pitch, Kohli moved forward and lifted his bat out of the way, only to the watch the ball come back at him and hit the top of off. It was too full to leave, so Kohli wouldn't have expected that to cut back off the pitch. Double strike from Finn.

V Kohli b Finn 0 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 80/2   AM Rahane 42* (57b 6x4)   ST Finn 6-1-20-2

18.4

Bresnan to Rahane, OUT, that is some catch! Kieswetter lunges to his right to grab a thick outside edge with one hand! The ball was full from Bresnan and Rahane reached for it and drove away from his body. England have stormed into this match, and how.

AM Rahane c †Kieswetter b Bresnan 42 (80m 61b 6x4 0x6) SR: 68.85

India 80/3   MK Tiwary 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 5.4-0-22-1

27.2

Meaker to Tiwary, OUT, caught behind! Tiwary pushed forward at good length ball that held its line outside off and got a nick through to Kieswetter, easy catch

MK Tiwary c †Kieswetter b Meaker 24 (41m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 123/4   SK Raina 18* (22b 3x4)   SC Meaker 5.2-0-26-1

36.5

Bresnan to Raina, OUT, pushed to square leg and it's a direct hit by Bopara. The ball flies to the boundary and now we see the reply. Is Raina's bat in the air? He survived a tight call in the first game. The bails are up and the bat looks to have bounced up as it crossed the line. Tight call. And he's gone! Vital breakthrough for England

SK Raina run out 38 (82m 46b 5x4 0x6) SR: 82.60

India 162/5   MS Dhoni 18* (33b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 6.5-0-24-1

43.4

Patel to Jadeja, OUT, Jadeja falls to a great catch! He ran down at the bowler, who sent the ball down wide of off. Jadeja wasn't quite to the pitch and ended up swiping across the line to send the ball towards midwicket, where a leaping Bell held the stinging chance cleanly

RA Jadeja c Bell b Patel 21 (27m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 206/6   MS Dhoni 41* (53b 2x4 2x6)   SR Patel 5.4-0-27-1

45.4

Patel to Ashwin, OUT, Ashwin holes out at long off! He used his feet and tried to lift this down the ground, but didn't quite get to the pitch and didn't fully go through with the shot. An easy catch for the fielder

R Ashwin c Bairstow b Patel 7 (8m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

India 215/7   MS Dhoni 42* (55b 2x4 2x6)   SR Patel 6.4-0-32-2

49.2

Patel to Kumar, OUT, but now he perishes in the pursuit of another boundary. This was perhaps a little shorter and flatter from Patel, and Praveen was cramped for room as he targeted the leg side again. He could only get the ball as far as Bairstow, who took a well-judged catch at long on

P Kumar c Bairstow b Patel 16 (17m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

India 259/8   MS Dhoni 63* (65b 3x4 3x6)   SR Patel 8.2-0-45-3
